I'm a bit disappointed with a driving game we brought, Driveclub. It doesn't seem to have a two player option and its telling me I have to purchase an upgrade to play most of the options.
Can anybody suggest a good driving game that I can purchase and enjoy with paying extras on top
Which options is it asking you to purchase? There was a cut down Playstation plus version version that was very limited but AFAIK that was given away for free. I have the paid for full version of Driveclub and although there is extra DLC that can be bought to give you more cars and tracks the basic game still has a reasonable amount of content.
It does state very clearly on the back of the box that it is 1 player only locally with 2-12 network players, so that shouldn't have been a surprise to you. As a PS4 newbie you might not have known that Sony have a strip of icons on the back off all game boxes that shows info like number of local and network players, HDD space requirements, Video output resolutions and if remote play is supported, etc. The same info is listed on the PSN online store if you are buying digitally.
I have recently acquired Trackmania Turbo which has up to 16 local players (not all at once) and has 4 player split screen racing. It is more of an arcade racer than Driveclub so not sure if that is what you are looking for.
Mantis Burn Racing also has 4 player split screen and is currently half price on the PSN online store until midnight tomorrow. Saw it at EGX and it looks like a fun top down view racer.
@Kippies Project Cars is only showing as single player on the PSN store, no local multiplayer, so doesn't sound like what @Dal is looking for.

Some games will require you to have a ps plus membership with this you can play online and get free games every mouth and on top of that you get discounts on games on the ps store.
As for driving games the crew is a good driving game it has online but will require a ps membership the crew has lots of DLC out now and a good range of cars. Protect cars game of the year is a fantastic game great looking and sound. F1 2016 is a f1 game if you like f1 give it a good and my last recommendation is dirt it's a rally game and really is good.
